Aberavon Promenade

This route is perfect for novices and young children. Traffic free and short, it offers lovely views out over to Mumbles Head.

At one time one of Wales' most popular destinations, with thousands of miners and their families visiting this large sandy beach, Aberavon beach is now one of Wales forgotten gems.

With great views over to the Mumbles and the Gower, large sand-dunes at the North West end of the beach, and the long promenade, Aberavon beach offers a great short and leisurely ride that can be combined with some traditional beach games.
